Tests the presence of ions of Cadmium to a high degree of accuracy to
detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment
There are many sources by which our bodies can be contaminated with cadmium. Cigarette smoke, refined foods,
water pipes, coffee and tea, coal burning, and shellfish are all definite sources. Cadmium is also a component
of alloys, used in electrical materials, and is present in ceramics, dental materials, and storage batteries.
During the growth of grains such as wheat and rice, cadmium (from the soil) is concentrated in the core of the kernel,
Refined flours, rice, and sugar all have relatively higher levels of cadmium.
One pack of cigarettes contains about 20 mcg. of cadmium, or about 1 mcg. per cigarette. About 30 percent of that
goes into the lungs and is absorbed while the remaining 70 percent goes into the atmosphere contaminating the
environment. With long-term smoking, the risk of cadmium toxicity is increased. Marijuana may also contain concentrates
of cadmium, so regular smoking of cannabis may also be a risk factor for toxicity from this metal.
Water pipes may be another source of cadmium contamination. Cadmium is often used to protect metals from corrosion. Soft or
acid water is corrosive and causes the metals in the pipes to break down, releasing cadmium and other minerals from them.
Hard water containing calcium and magnesium salts actually coats the pipes and protects against this leaching of minerals.
Other air pollution of cadmium comes from zinc mining and refining, and from the burning of coal. Cadmium is also an industrial
contaminant from the steel-making process.
Soil levels of cadmium are increased by cadmium in water, by sewage contamination, by cadmium in the air, and by high-phosphate
fertilizers. Coffee and tea may contain significant cadmium levels. Root vegetables such as potatoes may pick up cadmium, and
the grains can concentrate cadmium. Seafood, particularly crustaceans, such as crab and lobster, and mollusks, such as clams and
oysters, have higher cadmium levels.
